True to its name, the biggest professional networking application on Facebook is Branching Out!
BranchOut is the largest professional networking application on Facebook with more than 25 million registered users and over 400 million professional profiles.
BranchOut allows users in more than 200 countries to leverage their Facebook friend network to find jobs, recruit talent, and strengthen relationships with professional contacts.
According to www.branchout.com "Our engineers and designers have been hard at work to continually innovate and improve our user experience to increase engagement, while making it easy for people to network and find jobs".
At least three new people sign up for BranchOut every second, on average. Roughly half the new sign ups come from people outside the U.S., primarily Europe, Australia, Canada and India.
And since BranchOut added mobile functionality in late February, some 40 percent of new signups come from handheld devices.
The company recently closed $25 million in Series C financing led by the Mayfield Fund. Previous investors Accel, Norwest Venture Partners and Redpoint Ventures also participated in the round, bringing BranchOut‘s total funding to $49 million.
